Install OpenWrt on TP-Link EAP245 v3


I would like to flash OpenWRT to my TP-Link EAP245v3. The device is currently running on stock firmware 2.4.0.

First of all, thanks a lot to all you guys for putting so much work in bringing OpenWRT to the 245v3. I followed the "Adding OpenWrt support for TP-Link EAP245" thread, but there's one important question left.

According to I executed "cliclientd stopcs" successfully. But how can I proceed now?

May I directly flash the image linked under "Firmware OpenWrt snapshot Install" or do I need to modify that image in any way? I'm a bit concerned about the mentioned RSA signature check...

Thanks in advance for your help!

The "factory" build listed should be ready to use. Worst that would happen is the stock firmware rejects the file and will not flash it.


Thanks a lot for your reply! I dared to flash the factory image and it worked like a charm.

To whom it may be of any interest: After flashing the device was reachable as and passwordless root. So the first thing I did was setting a password and a new IP, because I'm using a different subnet here:

ip addr add
ip route add default via
echo "nameserver" >> /etc/resolv.conf

Now my EAP245 v3 was able to update the packages and install luci as descibed in

opkg update
opkg install luci
/etc/init.d/uhttpd start
/etc/init.d/uhttpd enable

After reboot luci was runnig, just as on any of my other OpenWrt devices.

Thanks again to you all!
